You should contact Scott Dyer of Card Stories (cardstories.co) as he is an amazing builder of card structures.  He would know best ;)

Hello Everyone!

By popular demand from our last campaign, Two dear backers requested for us to do a part 2 of the deck with female Riders Of The Apocalypse and to be able to mix these playing cards with the previous Riders of the Apocalypse deck.

We have hit our goal on day one.

I want to personally thank everyone here at playingcardforum. for your incredible support and having my kickstarter campaign link here. https://goo.gl/WKuycK

I am really happy to be here and share my love of playing cards with you all. My previous campaigns were The Four Seasons playing cards and HorROAR! playing cards and Volume 1 of Riders of the Apocalypse.

If you have missed Volume 1 of this deck  they are still available including the limited edition deck of Volume 1 from our webstore  https://www.acecollectablecards.com/collections/all as I can understand that quite a few would want the complete set to be able to mix the decks together.

There is a limited Edition deck of only 800 decks.

Queen Of Hearts  Conquest ,

Jack Of War  ,

King Of Spades Pestilence ,

Queen Of Clubs Famine  ,

Queen Of War  ,

Ace Of War ,

Trick Card ,

Conquest Ace & Court cards Volume II ,

War Ace & Court cards Volume II ,

Famine Ace & Court cards Volume II ,

Pestilence Ace & Court cards Volume II  ,

Brings me great pleasure to share them with you.

Design & Development / House of Cards Cardstock
« Last post by Griffix on Today at 04:11:46 AM »
Hello, I had a quick question that I could never get a straight answer for. What is the best type of card stock to use for cards intended for building houses/structures with?

I own several decks of cards but only 2 of them (my Dad's old Bicycle playing cards) seem to be good for building structures with. I've bought various brands of cards like the new Bicycle or themed ones like Firefly but the material they use has a weak, plastic-y feel to them and my structures don't hold up as well anymore. Currently I'm designing a deck of cards as a celebratory thing for my Skyrim mod team (the deck will be in-game) and wanted a deck for myself that I could use to play with but to also build with. I want to replace my Dad's cards as my building cards because they're old and valuable to me, I test my structures with weights and don't want them to bend up bent so I'm looking to build a deck that I can create structures with.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Deck Reviews! / Video Review - Vigor red Playing Cards by Alvin Herp

New from master magician Edo Huang and expert cardist Alvin Herp comes a deck that will meet the needs of the magic and cardist communities alike: Vigor.

The innovative borderless back design allows the pattern of each card to flow into the next, creating a hypnotic shuffle and a gorgeous flourish. The charming, minimalist court and custom aces allow instant card recognition while also echoing the diagonal lines of the card backs.

They are both durable and luxurious, printed on Classic Stock with Royal Finish.
Only 2000 decks of this limited print run are available to the public.

If you're looking for a universal deck with 6-suit, each suit having its own color, 20 cards per suit, designed as an extension of classical card deck, have a look at K6T:

Design & Development / Digital icons and wallpapers
« Last post by Rezfar on October 21, 2017, 04:09:07 AM »
Hello all,

I am an artist and I want to do art for playing cards but before that I thought it is better to start with something smaller about playing cards. So I want to make some digital icons and wallpapers about playing cards.

What do you think? Do you like such an idea and support? I am going to use kickstarter but as those are digital and there is no printing and shipping cost so those are super super cheap.

That was just an idea came to me!
Thanks for any reply.
